Michael J Cicala

About me

Michael J. Cicala earned his J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law in 2003. Upon completion of Seton Hall, Mr. Cicala served a judicial clerkship with Daniel P. Mecca, P.J.S.C. in Bergen County for the 2003 - 2004 court year. Mr. Cicala soon joined the boutique firm of Sodini and Spina, primarily representing banking clients. He then proceeded to Wilson Elser in Newark, continuing to represent commercial clients in all aspects of their business.


After a number of years and seeking to diversify his practice, Mr. Cicala started his own firm. In starting that practice, Mr. Cicala sought to represent clients on a wider variety of issues and give each client the individual attention that is lacking at larger firms. Mr. Cicala has gained experience in litigating all aspects of family matters, commercial litigation, landlord / tenant issues, municipal court, and traffic matters. He has also developed experience in transactional work, including residential real estate closings and estate planning.


Mr. Cicala is a member of the Warren County Bar Association and is currently an adjunct professor of Legal Studies at Sussex County Community College.
